Released Friday, 8th January 2021
Good episode? Give it some love!
A load flow study (LFS) determines proper loading as well as whether the proper voltage is maintained at each circuit due to voltage drop. In simpler terms, it helps to determine how much current load you have and whether the equipment is overloaded or not. Kareem Josephs shares what is needed to get started on a load flow study.  Items specific to the total load demand in the facility are factors that will play into the LFS. 

Kareem explains how often a LFS should occur and what changing variables should be considered in a system to warrant a study outside of that general timeframe.  He also shares how to take the data in a LFS and make system enhancements to ensure safe and reliable operation of expanded electrical load.  Risk mitigation is key for all electrical system owners and a LFS can be a great way to understand areas of concern and help facilitate a roadmap of modernization for necessary future enhancements.
